The Last Newspaper
The New Museum in New York City is presenting an exhibition “inspired by the ways artists approach the news and respond to the stories and images that command the headlines.”
The exhibition will animate the Museum with signature artworks and a constant flow of information-gathering and processing undertaken by organizations and artist groups that have been invited to inhabit offices within the museum’s galleries.
The Exhibition runs through January 9, 2011.
ScribeLabs filmmaker Alexandra Lerman worked with Philadelphia’s Slought Foundation to create The Perpetual Peace Project, a documentary exploring Immanual Kant’s foundational essay of the same name.
The documentary is part of the Last Newspaper exhibition. A talk will be given Thursday, December 16 to discuss the work and will include:
- 5:30pm: Gregg Lambert, Syracuse University, on “The Conspiracy of Peace”
- 6:30pm: Eduardo Cadava, Princeton University, on “War is Peace” and “Peace Commodity”
- 7:30pm: Emily Apter, New York University, on “The word ‘peace’ is an Untranslatable”
